Hosted by the Alliance for the Great Lakes
As the 2020 election season ramps up, voters are getting ready to mark their ballots. They’re researching candidate platforms, attending events and asking tough questions of candidates, and talking with family, neighbors, and friends about the election.
The Great Lakes have long enjoyed strong bipartisan support, because people of all backgrounds can see the value of clean water. Right now, we have an opportunity to encourage candidates to stand up for the Great Lakes and hold them accountable once elected. Although the presidential election leads the news, candidates are running for offices at the local, state, and federal levels. Every office on the ballot, from mayors to the President of the United States, will have the opportunity to influence the Great Lakes and water issues after the election. To help voters get involved this election season, we’ve developed a new toolkit — The 2020 Election Season & the Great Lakes.
We’ve also launched a Great Lakes Voter Information Center, which is available in English & Spanish. There you can check your voter registration status, learn about candidates on your local ballot, find your local polling location, and learn about mail-in or absentee voting in your state.
Join us for a webinar during which we’ll share the toolkit and have a conversation about how you can get involved to raise awareness about Great Lakes issues this election season.
For any questions or problems, please contact the event coordinator via the event's registration information.
